The Philadelphia Eagles are doing things their own way. Eagles’ General Manager Howie Roseman and Head Coach Chip Kelly are clearly working in unison to follow a clear plan. Develop talent through successful drafting, sign versatile players with something to prove and develop team spirit in the locker room.
To me, this seems to be the blueprint set out by the Seattle Seahawks when they brought in Head Coach Pete Caroll from college football. Their team has strength in depth throughout the roster, a quality quarterback and a team that clearly work hard for each other and who love their coach. This is what the 2014 Philadelphia Eagles are striving towards.
Of course, there’s no guarantee that the Eagles will end up as Superbowl Champions, as much as we all hope that will become the case! However, the Eagles are definitely following a plan which they hope will end with the Lombardi Trophy.
In my opinion, this next season will be huge for the Philadelphia Eagles. Letting go of former Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson was a huge decision for this organisation. However, it was a decision that proved the Eagles were 100% committed to Roseman and Kelly’s plan. Should the Eagles earn another NFC East Championship and progress into the playoffs, the Eagles will have been proved right to support these plans.
The summer so far has surely gone to plan for the team. They’ve managed to lock up their entire offensive line on long term contracts, kept hold of veteran wide receivers Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper, as well as giving Chip Kelly new offensive toys in the form of rooke wide receivers Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff, alongside free agent running back Darren Sproles.
In the Eagles 2014 locker room, there are very few big egos. There are a lot of hard working, intelligent players, who feel priviliged to wear midnight green. Let’s hope that this is a recipe for success.
